BEREC opens an additional session of the Article 61(3) EECC virtual meeting

20 May 2020

Due to a high number of received registrations for the Article 61(3) EECC virtual meeting with the Co-chairs of Fixed Network Evolution Working Group, BEREC opens an additional meeting session. It will take place on 23 June from 14:30 until 16:30 CEST. Consequently, the registrations to participate at the event received after 19 May will be automatically transferred to the afternoon session without the possibility to change timing.

The Co-Chairs of the Fixed Network Evolution Working Group, Björn Jonassen, and Wilhelm Schramm will be hosting the meeting. Participating stakeholders will have the possibility to ask questions on the draft BEREC Guidelines on criteria for a consistent application of Article 61(3) EECC. This shall help stakeholders to prepare their contributions to the public consultation of the draft document.

In order to contribute to the harmonization of the application of symmetric access regulation, the co-legislators have entrusted BEREC to draft guidelines on criteria for a consistent application of Article 61(3) European Electronic Communications Code. The document will provide guidance to the National Regulatory Authorities on criteria to determine key aspects for the application of Article 61(3) EECC, notably the access points, new and small network deployments, and high and non-transitory barriers to replication.
